Do the Virtual Walls from the 580 work with the newest iRobot Models? :?

I can't really answer your question without seeing what VWs your 580 came with. I suspect they will probably work with the later Roomba models but the later Roomba VWs are pulsed IR and may not work with earlier R3 Roomba models without the OSMO flash.

Answer to this models Virtual Wall/Lighthouses working with the newest Roombas is NO.

Thank you for this information. Too bad the newer robots can't recognize previous versions when it comes to virtual walls. It would be very useful when upgrading or replacing to reuse the virtual wall. I noticed 1 wall comes with the newer robots. I use 3 to keep the 580 in my kitchen. :roll:
Thanks again..
